Tax District Forming for D.C. Metro Extension
The group is hoping to raise funding for the system extension, which would add 23 new stations between Reston, Virginia and the airport.
"The Western Alliance for Rail to Dulles, a nonprofit group made up of Fairfax landowners, has recruited a majority of affected landowners to create the tax district, which would pay for $330 million in capital funding for the project. Fairfax would pitch in $90 million. Thirty-five landowners, about 57 percent of those affected, signed the group's petition."
